Methodist group addresses 'sexual brokenness'

 The Institute on Religion and Democracy reports on a United Methodist Church minstry, "Transforming Congregations," whose motto is "Equipping the Church to Model Sanctified Sexuality.”

While the ministry's approach speaks a very different language from the one I favor, Pope John Paul's theology of the body, it's encouraging to see an effort to engage churches in helping people heal from the damage caused by the misuse of the gift of human sexuality.
